that they unveiled over here in suburban virginia last week was to replace and repeal health care. that's where this ground is going to be fought heading into november 2nd, election day. first we heard from the president. here's what he had to say. >> it's grounded in the same worn-out philosophy. cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires. cut the rules for wall street and the special interests and cut the middle class loose to fend for itself. that's not a prescription for a better future. it's an echo of a disastrous decade we can't afford to relive. >> so now the question is are enough americans listening to the president's message? and if you look at what experts are predicting for the result of those elections, they say that republicans could sweep to power at least in the house of representatives if not the senate. kevin mccarthy, one of those so-called young guns of the conference had this response to the president. >> as a result of the economically disastrous policies of the current administration, millions of americans are out of work today. and our children will be saddled with a d
going to be huge, alex. it was thursday when republicans gathered out in sterling, virginia, and they unveiled their pledge to america. not to say a contract with america. a lot of people, include something conservatives, criticized it as being light on the details. but the political reality is how much detail do they really need to vat this point. they're almost running a front-runner campaign. but now they have this manifesto to guard themselves against the charge of being the party of no. they want to repeal and replace health care. they want more small business deductions. they want a free spending in 2008 levels. today the communications director here posted a blog post pointing out that that would mean the cutting of many head start children from the head start program. some 3,000 correctional officers from federal facilities around the country. 2700 fbi agents and this morning, the president in his web address had the following to say about gop plans. >> it's grounded in the same warn-out philosophy. cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires, cut the rules for wall
, that is a republican's pledge to america. they rolled it out. they went to a hardware store out in sterling, virginia, what do you make of it? >> i think it is less interesting as a governing agenda as it is as kind of a rorschach test. mainstream moderate republicans and conservatives seem to bell come that. we are enthusiastic about telephone. precisely because it's not particularly bold, not particularly dangerous or controversial it really overturns the obama agenda. but tea party, the hard-core of the tea party was very critical of the pledge. for the same reasons. because it wasn't bold enough. they don't want to just overturn the obama agenda. they want to overturn broad layers of the u.s. government. i think that that presents a problem for republicans if they win the house between those that really want to take down the whole building and those that want to govern an effective wage. it's going to be a serious conflict. >> so we are getting a look at what could happen down the road. >> i think it is more of a political document than sort of a vague blueprint for governing. i mean they finesse
